New Kids on the Block are hardly new. The 90s boy band has been around for decades, and although it may seem like they went on a haitus in the last decade, New Kids on the Block are back. But this time they are back with the Backstreet Boy.

The two boy bands used to be rivals, but they certainly weren't when both hit the stage at the American Music Awards Sunday to perform a medley of hits like Backstreet Boys' "Everybody" and "I Want It That Way," and New Kids on the Block's "Hangin' Tough" and "Step by Step."

According to, the AMA performance was the first time the two boy bands shared the stage for the first time as NKOTBSB.

New Kids on the Block has already recorded a new single with the Backstreet Boys, CNN reported.

What do you think about these boy bands getting back together? Did you see their performance at the American Music Awards last night?
